consistently good

We often eat at Pastis - love the relaxed ambience and the live music on Friday evenings. I love the fillet, my husband loves the mussels. VERY happy to see the oxtail has returned to the menu! Would be great if the beef stroganoff does too...

We found the restaurant hidden away in Constantia and this was the ideal spot for our family get together on Friday. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with good service and attention to detail. The starters and main dishes especially the Seafood Paella and Moules marinieres were fantastic and highly recommended. Definitely a place worth revisiting.

We very much enjoyed this restaurant on the Groot Constantia road. I had the vegetarian burger, which I remember as being very creative and tasty. The children enjoyed the chicken burgers and were very happy there. Very much recommended.

We had dinner at Pastis in Constantia last weekend and it was great. The Oxtail was outstanding and went well with the Constantia Shiraz that we drank. Well worth a visit.
